48 HBC Done

48 Hour Book ChallengeI did it! I finished reading a little after 10 pm last night, and did not wake up this morning in time to count any more reading (really, that’s a happy thing). I read for 731 minutes, or 12 hours 11 minutes, of which 391 minutes or 53% was audio – actually a higher proportion of print reading than I’d expected. I finished two print books, The Cup and the Crown and Jinx. I made it halfway through Goliath and not even a full disc of the Jacky Faber book, alas.

The birthday cake came out just fine, though I was distracted enough that I forgot to split the layers in half to make a four-layer cake. And I forgot the camera, so no pictures. I’m hoping since this isn’t a cooking blog you won’t be too disappointed.

I still need to write a review of Jinx, answer a bunch of sweet comments, and see how everyone else is doing – but it’s late and we were out all day and the internet is not wanting to load things for me. So I’ll plan to catch up with that tomorrow morning at work before my shift starts, and try to make my kitchen a little less disastrous tonight. It’s been fun reading with all of you!

    Oh, I love Jinx so so much!

  3. It looks like I’m going to have to add Jinx to my TBR list! Based on your review and recommends from others, it sounds like a book I would love.

  4. Sounds like you had a good challenge as well! I’m still trying to respond to all the folks who responded during the weekend to me. How fun to know how many other book lovers there are out there!
